Life After Life
Book Club, Kate Atkinson, Reading List, Book Review, Favorite Book
"Life After Life" by Kate Atkinson. A BookPage notable title. In 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, and embarks upon a life that will be unusual. Does Ursula's infinite number of lives give her the power to save the world from its inevitable destiny?
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson -- By FAR my favorite book of 2013, and probably my fave of the past 2 or 3 years at least. I started reading it on our drive to San Antonio Friday, and didn't put it down until I finished it this morning, two days later. Always the sign of a great read!
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. A book club selection -- I'm still not sure what I think, though a Goodreads reviewer called it a literary mash-up. Early 20th century historical fiction? Maybe. Literature is more like it. And I'm still thinking about it.
Life after life by Kate Atkinson. On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual.
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson: What if you could live again and again, until you got it right? On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath...

“it was only when she realized that it was too late, that it could never be, that she understood what it was that she had lost. Pamela's life would go on after she was dead, her descendants spreading through the world like the waters of a delta, but when Ursula died she would simply end. A stream that ran dry.” ― Kate Atkinson, Life After Life Pinned: 5/2013
“No point in thinking, you just have to get on with life. We only have one after all, we should try and do our best. We can never get it right, but we must try.” ― Kate Atkinson, Life After Life

Worth Reading, Dorian Grey, Dorian Gray, Favorite Books, Time Favorite, Oscar Wilde, High Schools
Dorian Gray, I loved it. Oscar Wilde is incredibly witty. This one is short and a quick read, so pick it up. It's worth reading.
"The picture of Dorian Gray" - Oscar Wilde. One of the very few books that I enjoyed in high school.
Oscar Wilde... playwright, novelist, poet, short story writer & wit.A phenomenon in 19th century England. Dorian Grey is convinced that beauty is all-important and wishes that his portrait would age instead of him. Beware of what you wish for! each time Dorian commits a sin his portrait ages, showing him what is happening to his soul. An all time classic read -- High school required reading.. :P

The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell. Laura says, " by the end you believe in his universe. None of it seems impossible. He knows well the incredible brilliance and brutality of life, and he leaves you open to it all." Click the link to read the full book review!
The bone clocks : a novel / David Mitchell. A vast, intricate novel that weaves six narratives and spans from 1984 to the 2030s about a secret war between a cult of soul-decanters and a small group of vigilantes called the Night Shift who try to take them down. An up-all-night story that fluently mixes the super-natural, sci-fi, horror, social satire, and heartbreaking realism.
The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell. Sprawling yet disciplined, drunk on life but ever cognizant of its brevity and preciousness, this time-traveling, culture-crossing, genre-bending marvel of a novel by the highly regarded author of Cloud Atlas utterly beguiles.
